I was able to pop into the Goodwill a few times in the past couple of weeks and mostly I have been picking up Christmas Ornaments for next year. I guess a lot of people didn’t want to pack away some of their holiday decorations for next year and instead dropped them off at Goodwill. Lucky me! I won’t bore you with more Christmas decoration photos (at least not until next Christmas comes along) but I got some great deals on Christmas bulbs, a mini white tree for $ 1.49, and a “Department 56” Red Cardinal Bird Ornament for .49 cents! It is all safely packed away in the attic (along with the flying squirrels) :) till next year.
Today I found this glass dome for only .99 cents! I left the tag on it for you to witness! I liked it because the knob on top was rounder and larger than some of the other domes I have seen there. This was actually a much nicer dome than some of the others that I paid $2.99 and $3.99 for. Sometimes there is no rhyme or reason to how they price some of their things. Sometimes you win sometimes you lose. Today was win.
I found the pedestal for $1.99 a few weeks ago and had big plans for it for Christmas but ran out of time to do anything with it. I think I am going to get some metallic silver spray paint and see if I can get a silver/pewter look for it. Or I may even try to “leaf” it with silver foil leafing. If I do, I’ll need my 40% off coupon from either Michael’s, Hobby Lobby, or A.C. Moore before I try that. Those leafing kits can be expensive. Has anyone done a project using the silver leaf flakes? I think it looks relatively easy. I’ll let you know if I give it a try.
